Do we honor them enough?
I’ve always been in awe of those who serve our country in the military. What an incredible measure of courage and selflessness to sacrifice one’s life fighting death-defying battles on behalf of others.
I also think of what it takes to be married to such a person or one of their children wondering if this is the day a beloved spouse or parent doesn’t return home... We have family members and friends married to these heroes.
Words are inadequate to describe the debt we owe, the reverence they deserve. Jesus knows because, fully God, He became fully man and sacrificed His life for us enduring a tortuous death.
The police who have lost their lives defending us should be honored also. By the way, the idea of defunding the police must have come from the pit of hell. Who wants to turn our neighborhoods over to thugs and drug addicts? It’s truly one of the most ridiculous ideas I’ve heard. We are so grateful to have soldiers and policemen willing to protect us and uphold law and order.
Wondering if our children fully understand the sacrifice of these lives for others. What a sacred gift! Memorial Day weekend is a great time to have a conversation with adult sons and daughters and grandchildren about why we honor these men and women.
May our flag always fly over our LAND OF THE FREE BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE.
Galatians 5: 1 "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm then, and do not let yourself be burdened again by a yoke of slavery."
